Good evening all my dear friends. It feels so good to have a minute to spend with all of you. Have missed having my door open to you all. There has been no change, and we began to follow Mother yesterday afternoon on her journey home. She is resting peacefully and we are assured she will until God calls her home. She does not have to fight any longer. I am so at peace with that, needless to say, my heart is heavy.
God blessed us all yesterday as she roused up, smiled, laughed a little, and ask Darbee Rae to sing to her. My precious 3 year old granddaughter stood on her bed and sang Jesus Loves Me two times to her great grandmother who because of blindness never got to see her darling face. Darbee's first visit out was to the nursing home when she was 3 days old and has not ever missed a week going to see Mother. Today Mother doesn't know she's in the world. Keep us in your prayers.
Okay,,, enough said about saddness. Guess with all the emotions flying lately in part that is the reason for my post tonight. Surfing the internet a while back I came across a saying from a person that said they had just found out what antiques were...Someone's junk who thinks they have a treasure. Did it make me mad?No! Did it hurt my feelings? No! Actually it made me kind of sad. So many of the younger generation don't care for old things whether they are real antiques or just family treasures handed down thru the years. I know everyone has a different style of decorationg and I am fine with that. If everyone loved old, prim, things we would all be suffering because great finds would be few and hard to get. I so respect what one likes and the way one chooses to decorate their homes.
But have you stopped to think what will happen to your treasures when it's your time to go? We don't really like to think that and one might say at that point they don't care, but I do. I am so fortunate to have a daughter who will treasure my family heirlooms and make sure they are to be kept safe within the family. Her style of decorating is somewhat different from mine, she is younger and a young mother and I respect that. But she loves family and the stories that go along with precious treasures.
I have a friend in TN, who has little notes tucked away in special places along with priceless treasures from her family. She took her son thru the house and told him to look in, under , around before throwing out anything. Now, she has a darling daughter-in-law that shares her love for all things old and I am sure she will always treasure anything for her MIL's home once that time comes. Just thought I would give you something to think about. (ha)
